We all want to experience life at its fullest, as well as capture it with our smartphones so that we can share these experiences on social media and with friends and family. Huawei, which is continually pushing the boundaries of mobile photography, has now launched the HUAWEI P40 series of smartphones, which gives users the tools to get the most out of their photography with its Ultra Vision Leica Camera system. Let’s take a closer look at some of the impressive features that make this camera system so special.
Revolutionary multiple camera setup
Camera technology has definitely moved on from the old-fashioned point and click handhelds. The HUAWEI P40 Series is equipped with a 50MP Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera and a HUAWEI Ultra vision sensor and also comes with 1/1.28-inch CMOS sensor that can capture more light than ever before. In fact, it is the largest sensor Huawei has ever featured on its smartphones. This means you can record the family while singing “happy birthday” and blowing the candles out in the dark, or stand in your balcony and capture the city’s night skyline.
The camera setup includes a 40MP Ultra-Wide Cine Camera for recording clips in 4K quality and a ToF camera for taking stunning photos with bokeh effects, while the 50x Super Sensing Zoom will bring objects closer, with a 5x Optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom. Not to be left out the all-important selfie is now easier than ever. With its front dual camera that includes a 32MP Selfie Camera and a Depth Camera, you can take beautiful selfies with amazing details and even record selfie video clips in 4K.
Get creative with Audio Zoom
Although images are a wonderful way of capturing special moments, the more senses we can involve the better. As such the Audio Zoom feature on the HUAWEI P40 Series not only allows you to get amazing quality video but you can also bring it to life with a unique system for capturing sound.
For example, you can record a video of your entire family playing a favourite game in the garden. To get really creative you can record each person’s participation individually and then put all the clips together. To do that all you need to do is zoom into each person separately and the HUAWEI P40 Pro’s Audio Zoom feature will enhance their audio. No need for any editing software; just have your HUAWEI P40 Pro at the ready and you are good to go.
No more guesswork with AI Golden Snap
We all want that perfect shot but without the practice and training it might not be so easy. But thanks to AI Golden Snap, the HUAWEI P40 Pro’s AI will pick out the best shot out of a series of photos, with the right posture and expressions, giving you the perfect picture to post on social media.
No unwanted distractions
It can be really annoying when that great photo of you and a loved one is spoiled by someone photo bombing your pic, or by a distracting window reflection. With the HUAWEI P40 Series, that is no longer a concern, as AI Remove Passersby and AI Remove Reflection use smart algorithms to get rid of these issues. That means you have more freedom in how, where, and when you choose to capture a moment on your HUAWEI P40 Series smartphone.
Nothing is too far with the 50x SuperZoom
With 50x SuperZoom in the phone’s camera, even the furthest of objects aren’t really that far away. Meanwhile, 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom, along with AIS and OIS stabilisation features, ensure you don’t have to worry about any kind of blur or shakes while zooming. Great pictures of a full moon on a clear night are now within your reach!
Visionary photography in a smartphone
Photographers have traditionally had to rely on the optical ability of their cameras, as well as their post-production skills, to tweak images exactly how they want them. Fortunately, the HUAWEI P40 Series takes on this burden for you through its smart HUAWEI XD Fusion Engine technology.
Thanks to the power of the Kirin 990 5G chipset, the HUAWEI P40 Series is the perfect foundation to produce extraordinary photography results. It is able to develop crystal clear images due to its noise reduction capabilities, which rivals single lens reflex cameras in performance.
The HUAWEI P40 Series’ Ultra Vision Leica Camera system is more than a fancy camera. It is packed with integrated and smart features that gives even novice photographers the power to take professional-grade pictures with ease.
The Huawei P40 Pro is priced at R20,999 and the HUAWEI P40 retails at just R16,999. They are available from all mobile operators and www.huaweistore.co.za
